Do you love your guy in BOXERS or BRIEFS?
Or are you somewhere in between?
This is much more important than your man’s comfort. This could be a problem if you’re not getting pregnant. According to Web MD, about one half of all couples who are experiencing fertility problems is the result of low sperm count. Tight fitting pants, workout shorts and...yes, underwear can cause the temperature to rise in the testicles which causes them not to produce sufficient sperm. According to Celia E. Dominguez, reproductive endocrinologist, at the Center for Reproductive Medicine at the Emory University School of Medicine. “Testes were made to be out in the breeze.” Now I’m sure that’s a picture that will play in your head for hours!
In my novella Crash and Burn, Keira and Rob have distanced themselves from their marriage because of fertility problems. Could the cause be as simple as Rob’s underwear?
The tight pants seems to be more of a problem for men who are forced to sit for long periods of time. The tightness of the pants along with the heat generated during the sitting on a leather or cloth chair can increase the temperature to a dangerous level…dangerous to the sperm. Web MD also recommends that men avoid hot tubs and saunas if they have issues with low sperm count.
Yet, I think the best advice is “When you're at home, take off your pants, says Grunebaum who is also medical director of the WebMD Fertility Center. "It will not only help reduce testes temperature, but it might also turn her on.”
Ladies, what do you say about this new debate…BOXERS, BRIEFS or NOTHING?

Her husband stomped away in a huff. His damp clothes accentuated his fit body. The many nights he’d spent lately at the gym had firmed and toned his already-sexy body into a dream machine. Yeah, and all those other women ogling him. Too bad the gym didn’t do more for his attitude. I heard his comment. Why does he always have to push my buttons? He really shouldn’t have expected me to go walking, looking for…. She shivered. What if there were bodies? I wonder if anyone else survived the crash. I’ve got better things to do. Maybe I’ll find out this island is really a resort like in that romance novel I read. Then I can save the day.
She picked up Gris and gave him a kiss on the nose. “Little man, you’d never get mad at me. Let’s go find ourselves the perfect place to rest. Maybe we can prove to that man I’m capable.” With the dog settled in her arms, Keira headed inland, away from the beach and toward the jungle.
Trees filled her vision. Their dense foliage provided shelter and had allowed moss to cover the ground. She welcomed the softness under her feet. She noticed the drop in temperature as well. The blistering sun from the beach dappled through the leaves and created a cool, welcoming environment. The sound of birds and other animals teased her hearing. She paused and inhaled. A flowery fragrance filled the air.
The trees are so thick, I can’t see more than five feet in front of me. I hope there aren’t any snakes. Her stomach knotted. Snakes or lack of food? She pulled Gris closer to her, absently running her fingers through his fur. I’m sure there’s no coffee joint or five-star hotel around here. I would’ve seen something before now. Rats. I was really hoping for the happy ending of a romance novel.

About Melissa Keir:
For my wedding in Vegas, my books and computer came with me but there wasn't enough room for my wedding shoes. It’s all about priorities! As an avid reader, I was probably born with a book in hand. Luckily my mom was also an avid reader, so it was easy to "borrow" her books when my books were finished.
I was reading from an early age about dashing men on horseback riding to the rescue of strong willed and capable women who didn't really need rescuing. I came to expect that women in fairy tales should have fought their own battles. When I was older, I found Margaret Atwood and realized that women could re-tell history in their own way and I experimented with changing those basic fairy tales.
Fortunately for me, my husband allows me the opportunity to be myself (spend my salary on books) and still takes care of the really important things for me like killing spiders and opening jars. As an elementary teacher, teaching children about the many worlds inside of books is a gift that I’m lucky enough to do for a living. Teaching the next generation to love reading is a lot of fun! Reading the right book can make a new world come alive!
Currently living in the suburbs of Ann Arbor, Michigan with my darling husband, way-too-grown-up children and spoiled dogs, I enjoy getting away through a book to escape the harsh winters or summer road construction.
